Highly kewl :D How long did you spend doing the textured surface of the head? Looks pretty tedious, also looks real good though :cool:

That album is good. Love the render!

What would also be cool is if you could swirl the red drops around the the head from the neck up.

Nice. Not much a fan of Coldplay, but that image is better than anything I can pull off, I hate organic modelling...
